Clinical reasoning is an integral component of the occupational therapy profession. It is “the thought process that guides practice” (Rogers, 1983). The ability to effectively problem solve in a clinical work environment is a skill that must be practiced in order to master. In an ever-changing, diverse profession such as occupational therapy, it is imperative to remain knowledgeable and current of any changes or medical advances that may improve clinical competence. Clinical reasoning skills cannot be mastered solely with a textbook filled with examples of diagnoses and treatment interventions.
The term reflection means the examination of personal thoughts and actions. For nurses this means focusing on how they interact with their colleagues and with the environment to obtain a clearer picture of their own behaviour. This means it is a process in which a nurse can better understand themselves in order to be able to build on existing strengths and take appropriate future action (Somerville, 2004). Reflection is a way to bring your own intuition along with empirical knowledge together. Reflective practice in nursing is guided by models of reflection.

This relationship is central to the client's concerned with approach to health care, and will show some of the skills that are developed by the medical practitioner, to enhance therapeutic relationship.

Any concerns or complications encountered on previous occasions can be reflected upon and necessary amendments can be made. This alteration to one’s practice can empower healthcare workers to deliver first class person centred care, whilst remaining observant, competent and mindful of previous endeavours, which can instil a level of confidence within the workplace.
